“Home to Hitler's Tea Service!”
“Among other interesting items in this museum, you will see Adolf Hitler’s personal silver tea service, parachute dummies, and a recreation of a WWI trench with a dugout. Also see a real West Gun, a unique trench weapon used in WWI. Oil paintings, intricate jade sculptures, expressive Remington bronzes, ancient and modern weapons, photos, clothing, hands-on displays and lifelike dioramas fill the galleries, bringing history to life through the eyes of artists and craftsmen. Farley Berman was born in Anniston in 1910. After attending the University of Alabama, he graduated with a law degree from Emory University in 1934. While practicing law in Atlanta, Berman also joined the Army Reserve in 1937 and enlisted in 1941 after Pearl Harbor. He spent much of his time in the service in Military Intelligence. He met his wife Germaine while he was stationed in North Africa in World War II. She was a French National and a member of the French Intelligence. As Berman later recalled, "I was spying on her, and she was spying on me." They were married in 1945 and returned to Anniston to make their home and live for the remainder of their lives.
Between this and the Natural History Museum only a few feet away, it is a great way to spend the afternoon. Very reasonably priced.
This museum and the Natural History Museum next door are pretty unbelievable hidden gem museums, with way more interesting exhibits than you may expect. Highly recommended.
If you're a spy fan, you'll definitely enjoy visiting Berman Museum. The museum is small but the displays were very unique and interesting. There were cool spy weapons like guns as a flutes and etc. There were also collection of guns, swords, sculptures, and other old artifacts. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the whole collection displays.
